iPAQ Tips--Part 6 of 6
You might be tempted to carry your new Compaq IPAQ around in your pocket without the carrying case or the Style Pack plastic sleeve (both are included in your iPAQ 38/39/5400 box). Don't. It's a bad idea.

The IPAQ's docking port is exposed on the bottom of the unit. Your pocket, backpack, or purse might contain objects or dust that could damage the docking port. Both the carrying case and the Style Pack protect the docking port, and your continued ability to sync your PDA to your PC.
